The original post was thought to refer to claims made by Fadi Fawaz, boyfriend of the late George Michael, who claimed Tweets from his account saying Michael took his own life were done by “hackers”.

After being approached for comment, he appears to have blocked PinkNews, later tweeting: “@PinkNews FOLLOWS YOU I had to block these people!”
